Discussion in 'Epcot' started by Nick, Jun 6, 2018.
This is up there with Barbie bad.
Roddy created B&T? Thought that was before his time.
I thought it was Jason Surrell that started (or at least first wrote) Bill & Ted. Either way the new show at Epcot has the same vibe is some of the earlier iterations of the Beetlejuice show at Universal.
man it's been a sad year for Orlando park attractions so far...maybe I'll finally go to Sea World this fall.
Also, keep in mind that the only other resorts that don't have this show are Tokyo and Hong Kong. It's better that we have some variation of this show and that they are capitalizing on Guardians in some way than nothing at all.
Created wrong word, perfected more. His are the gold standard B&T shows that built good will to keep it going through some bumpier years after. My point remains it's a theme park show geared to a power drinking crowd, which--love it or hate it--is exactly what World Showcase needs.
I believe he and Aiello used to 'shadow' write for it...Then they both went on to be creative directors....Well Roddy first, then Aiello
Some of the best B&T years
It's shocking how 80's disco this band from another planet looks. You can see that if Disney has the change to do something Marvel in Orlando they go all the way. I'm glad this exists, it's canon now, right?
But I have a question about the amazing backstory. This is a cultural exchange and a band is sent to earth to perform...music from the USA?
I think I love you
Kenny was in there too.
I find this to be the opposite. The older crowd tends to like World Showcase more than the teens tend do, but teens will still go back there because it is Guardians. Baby Boomers loved the first Guardians because of the 70s music and that same crowd loves these nostalgia music shows.
Embarrassed to say the new g/f told me after she almost got up and left because she thought it was going to be 30 minutes of random screaming and white noise. Just a reminder things we hard core theme park fans are jaded about still work gangbusters with more casual fans.
Just saw the show in-person for the first time. My opinions from watching it on YouTube were only reinforced by seeing it live. Singing is great, casting was phenomenal all around, although I couldn’t help but think of Star-Lord as Bill Preston, esq. every now and then . Paul Gadja pulled off the role better than I could’ve ever expected at a Disney offering.
For a Summer offering, you can’t really ask for much more. For my liking, it was actually better than many permanent shows on property.
Anything is better than the lumberjack show haha
This show is coming to an end for the summer, wouldn't be surprised if they bring it back next year considering how it was received.
Returning this summer, June 14 - August 18:
Reminder that Awesome Mix Live debuts starts it's summer run tomorrow for those that enjoyed it last year.
I'm sure it tastes fine, but no way I'd touch that bun.
